Landmass Information


NRCan provides clearly defined legal boundaries, a robust property system framework, authoritative geographic infrastructure and fundamental geospatial information on Canada’s landmass, without which Canada's economy, environment, and standard of living would be negatively impacted. This program delivers Canada's regulatory system for Canada Lands legal surveys, the fundamental geodetic reference system, earth observation and mapping information. Together, these support the Canadian public, other departments and levels of government, the private sector and academia to carry out a variety of decisions founded on location-based information, such as land transactions, commercial/industrial development, transportation and logistics. This fundamental information enables, effective management of Canada’s natural resources and lands including opportunities for collaboration across jurisdictions (e.g., cross-border planning, regulatory efficiency), which advances the interests of Canada’s natural resource sectors, both domestically and internationally.
